No I know: that's the reason - processor too fast (!).
FileMaster was written in TurboPascal and TurboPascal is known for having
a bug that causes runtime errors if the processor exceed a certain speed !

So the program still runs properly on my Pentium 133, while it won't run
any more on a Pentium II 266.

See the link below for more information and links to some patches/workarounds.

For I don't have some Pentium IIs or IIIs here I can't test 'em,
please report if you could fix the problem on your machine.

Regards
Mathias
